1Capital DEL includes items treated as resource in Estimates and accounts but which are treated as Capital DEL in budgets.

2Depreciation, which forms part of resource DEL, is excluded from total DEL since capital DEL includes capital spending and to include depreciation of those assets would lead to double counting.

The Crown Prosecution Services (CPS) element of the Attorney-General’s total DEL will be increased by £8,185,000 from £633,242,000 to £641,427,000.

The change in Resource DEL arises from budgetary transfers totalling £8,185,000 from the Ministry of Justice consisting of

£4,300,000 to help fund the Compass Case Management System

£2,600,000 from Victim Surcharge collections

£785,000 to provide support for the Local Criminal Justice Boards

£500,000 to help fund the delivery of the Corporate Manslaughter Act 2007

The Serious Fraud Offices (SFO) element of the Attorney-General’s total DEL will be increased by £2,792,000 from £38,754,000 to £41,546,000.

The change in Resource DEL arises from the take up of £2,792,000 in blockbuster funding relating to UN Oil for Food cases to enable the SFO to continue with the investigation and prosecution of outstanding cases in 2010-11.
